||Concentrated formula helps maintain calcium level in reef aquariums
||Accelerates coral growth by providing biologically available calcium
||Reef Calcium simplifies reef aquarium care and coral supplementation
Reef Calcium is specifically designed to supplement the reef aquarium with readily bio-available calcium. It promotes the growth of captive corals without the usual problems of chalk formation and depleted alkalinity. Reef Calcium is a concentrated (50,000 mg/L) biologically available polygluconate complexed calcium intended to maintain calcium in the reef aquarium without altering pH. Delivers 175 times more calcium than Kalkwasser. 250 ml treats up to 1,000 gallons.
Directions for Use
Add 1 capful (5 mL) per 20 gallons twice a week. You can increase the amount or frequency based on growth response but do not exceed 3 capfuls per 20 gallons per day. Each capful will raise calcium by about 3 mg/L. NOTE: Use a calcium test kit to measure calcium. It is not necessary to exceed 380 mg/L total calcium when using this product. Color and clarity may vary between lots.

Reef Calcium is a concentrated (50,000 mg/L) biologically available polygluconate complexed calcium intended to maintain calcium in the reef aquarium without altering pH.
Polygluconate complexation confers several benefits:
- Increases the bioavailability of the calcium
- Provides a rich source of metabolic energy to help maintain peak coral growth
- Prevents calcium precipitation/alkalinity depletion
- Polygluconate contains no nitrogen or phosphorous, thus it is biologically impossible for it to lead to algae growth in a properly maintained reef system.
Reef Calcium may be used alone to maintain calcium but will provide enhanced levels of coral growth when used in conjunction with an ionic calcium supplement such as Reef Complete (#923027) or Reef Advantage Calcium (#434561). Reef Calcium is intended to maintain calcium levels. If calcium becomes seriously depleted, one should either perform a water change or use an ionic calcium supplement to restore the depleted level of calcium.
